We have arrived at our hotel in Kenya!
The team did a great job through each of the legs of our journey: a 10-hour flight from Chicago to Istanbul, Tukey; a brief layover; an 8-hour flight from Istanbul to Mombasa, Kenya with a brief stop in Kilmanjaro, Tanzania on the way, customs, luggage, and a bus to our hotel. That much travel can take a lot out of you, but our team held it together very well (Starbucks in the Istanbul airport didn't hurt).
We arrived at the hotel around 4:45am local time and began the process of distributing supply luggage from personal luggage and getting settled in.
We plan to attend worship services at Crossroads Fellowship in just a few hours, so some of us are getting a few hours of sleep (in a bed rather than a airplane seat!) and some us will be powering through (and likely collapsing later this evening).
It has already been a blessing to know that so many people are lifting us up in prayer back home and around the world. Thank you so much for your continued prayer and support. Stay tuned for more updates!
